The Butterfly Seller (Art Journal page - click to enlarge)



I absolutely adore this piece!  Is that awful to say?  If so, I don't care!  I had so much fun making it.  I created it while completing a lesson on "restricted means" as part of the Pablo Picasso segment of the Art Journaling class I'm taking.  I'm going to create a few more pages in my art journal before I decide to move on from Pablo Picasso to the next artist in the series:  Mary Cassatt. 


Have you made anything lately that you loved?  If so, what was it?


Happy creating!

It's not awful to say! I love this too :-)

What have I made lately that I loved? My JYC/DD album; a cake; and the photo I posted on my blog today - OK, I didn't 'make' it, but I took it!

It is beautiful,Rinda...no wonder you love it...I love it too...and nothing wrong with being proud of what you've created.
2 questions....I love the figure....is she stamped or drawn?
What paper do you use for your art journals?

Thanks everyone! The girl is stamped with a stampotique stamp. They make very unique stamps. Right now I am using spiral bound water color paper tablets for my art journals. And, Mel, I definitely think your photo counts as your creation.

Of course you are right to be proud of yourself - nothing wrong with that. It is a lovely piece of work and if I'd made it, I would be proud too!
The butterfly/balloon idea is wonderful.

Sonja said...

Wow! I LOVE it too! The colors, textures, and composition are fabulous!

Amy said...

Absolutely love it!
I think it is great to love your own work - for the most part I love my pages ... every now and then one doesn't turn out how I imagined, but, I firmly believe that my stories are worth loving so I'm ok with most things that I do :-)
